Cordele-Crisp County offers the best of all worlds. Cordele has all of the "small town" charm you hope to find in a South Georgia community. Comfortable neighborhoods with shade-covered drive, Victorian and Federal style homes, and an active downtown district are only a few of the amenities that make Cordele an ideal place to live.
Cordele has retained its agricultural roots and this important economic sector continues to play a large role on its success today. As the "Watermelon Capital of the World," Cordele is vibrant during the summer as the watermelon crop is harvested and shipped nationwide. The community's annual Watermelon Festival is just one reason to visit the community.
